On a visit to beautiful Winterthur, the former Delaware home of the DuPont family, I discovered this beautiful tree along one of the main roads through the grounds. Even though we were there during mid-September, the trees' colors were only on the edge of deciding to change. I'd love to go back when this particular Japanese Maple is in its full autumn dress! Even so, I thought the lines of the trunk and branches were very graceful.
